Campus Cutie: Ernesto Raúl the Great

            Her Campus cuties come in all shapes, sizes, and flavors, and this week’s hottie is no exception. On that note, I’d like to intruce Ernesto Raúl. Key Words: tall, dark, and handsome, just like his taste in coffee.  While boredom drove most tweens to experiment with the crack addicition that is a handheld Nintendo, Ernesto became obssesed with global geography and history. This obsession slowly shot through his veins with a passionate insanity only Alexander the Great could ever hope to understand. However, destiny is a funny thing, and though he’s still very much in love with the history of the human condition, Ernesto has a budding romance with the birth of life and counciousness, hoping to one day be the hands that safely guide each vessel into the beginning of the future as a Gynecologist.

What is your favorite pick-up line?

Did it hurt when you fell from heaven? Whoop there it is.

What is your weirdest attribute?

I’m color blind.

Do you have any icons or historical figures you identify with?

Alexander the Great. History calls him crazy, but I just think of him as passionate. He lived fearlessly and furiously, guided by his own brand of Aristotle’s philosphy. He conquered thrones, countries, and love. Alexander is GOALS.

If you could go back in time, what would you tell your younger self?

Don’t fall in love until until you fall in love with yourself.

What kind of person are you looking to date?

I’m looking for someone who pursues understanding. Who walks with a smile on their face and their heart on their sleeve. Beauty fades with times and pain, but intelligence, like a fine wine, evolves within the soul. Feminism, equality... justice is key. I don’t know if there’s a god, or if theres something greater out in the universe, but I do believe in coffee, and I hope to one day find someone with whom I can share a shot of espresso while watching the sun rise.

Favorite part of  your body?

My beard.

Whats your dream Date?

I don’t want to sound obssesive, but coffee is a way of life. So anywhere where there’s coffee is already a dream. But jokes aside, let's get some pizza, get a spot by the beach, and talk about love, magic, and the galaxies as the waves crash around us.
